After all those warm winter days we are cold here this week. My little bird is too. Good thing he has his winter coat on.

Winter in Texas 2
Oil on linen on panel
8 x 8

Being a fair weather plein air painter, it's only the lovely winter days that I go out and paint. Lucky for me that here in central Texas their are quite a few of those.

Winter in Texas
Oil on linen on panel
11 1/2 x 8

This is the first plein air painting I've done that I liked enough to post. I went to a sleepover at my painting buddy Belinda's house and I guess the muse came to me. I did two paintings there I liked! I'll post the other one tomorrow.

The White Ewer
Oil on linen on panel
6 X 6

This is the first painting I've done in a long time. It's good to be back. I like the looseness of the brush work and even though there is hardly any white in the painting I think it "reads" as a white pitcher.

I have been gone from painting for a long time but I have been busy learning Adobe Illustrator. My husband and I have been developing Iphone/Ipad apps. This one is called Pop Dem Reps, and is our first. You choose to be a Democrat (donkey) or a Republican (elephant) and try to pop your opponent. Teapots come along and cause all sorts of trouble. It's a simple but fun game. Our nephew Jesse A. Lopez (a great graphic artist) did most of the game art. But I did the bottom two screens. If you want to see the game in action go to http://crowdedmoon.com/popdemreps.html and click on the video.
